Wizz Air UK announces first domestic route

Wizz Air UK has announced its first ever domestic service with flights from both Doncaster Sheffield and Cardiff to Jersey.

The two services, which both begin on July 9, will operate twice weekly on Mondays and Fridays with fares from £17.99.

Jersey is the largest of the Channel Islands.

Owain Jones, managing director of Wizz Air UK, said: “The Wizz Air UK team is working hard to ensure that summer 2021 is not cancelled, by continuing to provide low-fare flights to the destinations that our UK customers love to travel to.

“After an extremely challenging year we know that our customers are looking to get away for some sunshine and relaxation. Jersey has it all: uncrowded beaches, natural beauty and rich history. We are looking forward to offering our customers in Doncaster Sheffield and Cardiff, where we will soon open our new base, the opportunity to explore Jersey and the surrounding Channel Islands. The Wizz Air UK crew will be welcoming passengers on board our young and green aircraft to provide the excellent onboard service we are known for.”

Wizz Air UK was formed in 2017 as a subsidiary of Hungarian carrier Wizz Air in case there was no aviation deal as part of Brexit, but the airline has since said it is “no longer a Brexit contingency”.
